Showing the results of the "fine phasing" stage of JWST's optical system alignment, this image of a star called 2MASS J17554042+6551277 also reveals several galaxies in the same section of the sky. Another six weeks of tweaking and two months of instrument preparations are set to follow now, with the first scientific imagery expected in the summer. Image: NASA/STScI.
